like few others do, betsy andreu whose husband rode with lance. daniel coyle, author of the book "the secret race." also bill strickland an editor-at-large at "bicycling" magazine, and senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin. betsy, your thoughts, you didn't actually watch the second part of the interview, but now on the totality of what he has said, your thoughts tonight? >> yeah. i didn't. i couldn't watch the interview tonight not because i didn't want to, i taped it, i will watch it. i have been asked a lot, and for me it's a sense of relief more than vindication, but it's a tremendous sense of sadness. yesterday i was obviously visibly upset, and today it's -- as you said, it's a sense of sadness. >> sadness about what? >> it, how it has affected so many people in such a destructive way. that's why. i mean, it hurts -- obviously it has a toll on lance. so many people in the saga have been hurt. i don't know if you touched upon greg for example. his children, people who just defended him to the ninth or the tenth, whatever you say. he hurt the sport of cycling. he caused it irreparabl

betsy andreu, she's the wife of cyclist frankie andreu, armstrong dropped frankie as a teammate after betsy accused lance of doping in 1996. here's how it happened. she says that she and her husband were present in a hospital bed -- in a hospital room when lance is in a hospital bed and had to answer some tough questions to the doctors about his health. when the doctors asked have you been taking any drugs, any performance enhancing drugs, she says that lance listed a litany of them, and that she gave that testimony under oath when she was asked. she just said she was honest and for that honesty, she and her husband were attacked and that their lives were changed forever and then as i said already, per husband dumped from the team. betsy had a chance to respond to the oprah interview and she did so by speaking directly to camera via anderson cooper's "a.c. 360" program last night. you got to see it. >> you owed it to me, lance, and you dropped the ball, after what you've done to me, what you've done to my family, and you couldn't own up to it. and now we're supposed to believe you? yo

. >> if you were to go back and look add all of the tapes and things you said over the years about betsy -- >> and i -- i think she would be okay with me saying this, but i can take the liberty to say it, and i said, listen, i called you crazy. i called you a bitch, i called you all these things, but i never called you that. >> because that's one of the things she said. >> she thought i said you're -- >> crazy, yes, bitch, yes, fat, no way. he's got a kind of half smile as he says it. you can decide for yourself what that means. it's clearly not going over well with some of lance armstrong's victims and there are other things on closer inspection sound strange. here is oprah asking armstrong about the size and scope of his cheating operation. >> it was very conservative. very risk averse. very aware of what mattered and didn't. >> keeping him honest, armstrong is being uncharacteristically modest. in summing up 1,000 pages of evidence against the cycling team, the evidence shows beyond a doubt that the u.s. postal service pro cycling team ran the most sophisticated, professional and succ

to wear this someday. >> reporter: her love for betsy johnson spans generations. >> this was my mom's. >> reporter: so when her husband gave her a betsy johnson gift card a couple of years ago, she was thrilled. >> it was a great gift. i was really excited but i wanted to wait a little while. >> reporter: she says she had a few pounds of baby weight she wanted to lose first but before she knew it, betsy filed bankruptcy and store employees told her the gift card was no good. >> gift cards don't expire but sometimes stores do. if you get a card use it sooner rather than later. >> reporter: the state division of consumer affairs says while california has some of the best consumer gift card protections, bankruptcy is not one of them. >> if it's a liquidation kind of bankruptcy you are just another unsecured creditor so chances are you won't be able to use the gift card. >> reporter: but bankruptcy never occurred to the woman considering her favorite designer's long running success whose signature isn't worth the shoe it's written on in her eyes anymor

testified they heard him admit he took drugs. armstrong went on the attack, accusing frankie and betsy of lying. >> she said in her deposition she hates me. >> reporter: why would he say the same thing if you don't? >> probably to support his wife. >> reporter: after that, frankie went from friend to pariah almost overnight. >> i'd go to events and i didn't know who my friend was, who my foe was, who would shake my hand, who would spit at me in disgust. i got e-mails, traitor, rat, just ripped apart. it was also from the live strong supporters. >> reporter: they weren't alone. fellow teammates floyd landis and tyler hamilton and former tour winner greg lamond all spoke up and all were smeared as jealous liars trying to profit, cover their own troubles, or both. but landis wouldn't be denied, speaking with investigators, and eventually launching the investigation that brought armstrong down. he talked about it in a "nightline" exclusive in 2010. >> if i'm taking on lance armstrong, that should be evidence enough that there's a problem with the system, because i'm saying that a bunch of

had a chance to talk to betsy andreu, the wife of one of the cyclists. one of the amazing moments was when he talked about when she had said, look, i overheard him saying that he used all of these different things. and he tried to make a joke about how, yes, i called her a bitch and nasty, but i never called her fat. what did she say to you about her reaction to the interview? >> she feels it was a huge disappointment. she feels lance is not telling the truth. and that the fact that in that interview with oprah winfrey, she point blank asked if betsy andreu had told the truth. if lance armstrong if that hospital room back in 1995 or whenever it was, told doctors about all the drugs he was using, and he refused to answer the question twice to oprah. and for betsy, that was a huge issue. and a huge disappointment that this was an opportunity for him to come clean, to actually tell the truth. and she feels he certainly failed. and i think everyone on our panel feels the same way. >> it was interesting. in so many of the moments that we saw, i mean, whether people obviously don't -- p

and betsy andreu. travis is telling scott on "60 minutes" that lance armstrong lied to oprah winfrey about his 2009-2010 attempt at the tour de france. armstrong said he used a little bit of epo previously. travis tygart says that is absolutely not true. also lance armstrong claimed he didn't offer usada a $250,000 donation amid lingering questions about whether he was doping or not. and that he didn't pressure teammates to dope their blood. travis says all of that is not true. that he did pressure teammates, that a lieutenant of his did offer a donation that he was doping 2009, 2010. and that he pressured teammates. what's your reaction to what travis tygart has said? >> well, i think that, remember, in the interview with oprah, lance said if he could go back to june when usada reached out to him, he said he would do anything to have that day back and accept his offer. so despite trying to bankrupt usada and destroy them, they've graciously given lance another opportunity to have that day back. and if lance is truly sorry, he is going to be truthful, and he's going to help clean up the sp

armstrong as one of his closest friends. they were teammates in the 1990s. frankie and his wife betsy frequently socialize theed with lance armstrong. this picture shows the three of them cooking dinner in 1995. what would become a quickly pattern, armstrong turned on the andreas after they testified in a lawsuit alleging that armstrong used performance-enhancing drugs. armstrong vehementally denied the charges. and it didn't stop there. betsy andrue says armstrong vilified her in the press, calling her vindictive and jealous and portraying her husband as bitter because his cycling contract with armstrong's team was not renewed after the 2000 season. and then there was this. a voicemail left for betsy andrieu in 2008 by a friend and associate of armstrong. >> i hope somebody breaks a baseball bat over your head but i also hope that one day you will have adversity in your life and you have some type of tragedy. it's pathetic, betsy. i thought you were a better person than that. >> betsy andreu provided the voicemail to the "new york daily news" as evidence of the threats and intimidati

less in the sport. >> betsy, your husband was on the team. do you find it unbelievable when lance armstrong says he didn't pressure people to dope on the team? >> yeah, and maybe in his own mind he thinks that that's how he justifies it, or negates it. i don't quite get it. at one point he said he wasn't the enforcer, but at another point he said he was the bully. from our own experience, we know that when franky refused to get on the program, to see ferrari, he was left off the team. he eventually had no job. >> ferrari was the doctor. i'm just saying for our viewers. >> yes. so i don't agree with that. because not everybody -- i think lance's projecting on to other people what he himself was doing, or what he himself felt. >> juliet, they've offered armstrong a deadline of february 6th to cooperate with them, with the possibility -- possibility of reducing his lifetime ban. do you think he will take them up on that, that he would testify that he really would come clean? in that oprah interview, he really didn't go into details about how the doping program worked. he said he only
